The Ngorongoro Conservation area in Tanzania includes the world’s largest crater which acts as a natural enclosure for almost every species of wildlife found in East Africa. The Maasai still live within the conservation area, and it’s also home to Olduvai where some of man’s earliest remains have been found.It is also the world’s biggest existing and unbroken caldera.

Many years ago, a huge volcano erupted and collapsed in itself. The now huge crater serves as home to more than 25,000 large animals. The place is a reserve for plenty of game species that includes lions, zebras, elephants, wildebeests, rhinos and gazelles. Tourists are also welcome to see the hundreds of bird species. During winter months in Eurasia, there are several rare migrant birds.

Other than wildlife, Ngorongoro is a place for culture and history too. One can enjoy the traditions, music, art and food of the Maasai people. There are several museums too, displaying anthropological artifacts from the crater.

Just within the vicinity are first-rated hotels. Some of them are the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge, the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge and the Ngorongoro Serena Lodge. They offer world class cuisines: from the traditional Tanzanian food to Chinese and Italian dishes.
